Forgotten things

Forgotten things

Memory is more indelible than ink…

Anita Loos

Quiet Moment.

I’ve been on a bit of an unintended hiatus. My video card had to be replaced. It was only a few months old, so I had to go through a warranty exchange with the manufacturer and it took a bit longer than I hoped.

Sometimes, a break is good though. Now with the COVID19 situation, I am working from home. That has been a challenge and I find myself wanting to be back at the office. It’s funny… we are strange, habitual little creatures. “Work” is so awful when it’s all you do, but then you get some “freedom” from it and yearn to go back.

I hope everyone is safe and healthy. ♥


Those quiet moments, few and far between, when the world falls away and you can hear the sound of your own voice again…
What hides behind those silent eyes?

Autumn

Let’s go back a little bit to my second favorite season, Autumn! It’s been unseasonably warm where Isobel lives in RL this Winter. It feels more like Autumn. “In like a lion, out like a lamb,” as the saying goes. It’s been the other way around! The weather came in like a lamb this year, so maybe I’ll get my snow before Springtime. ^.^
